With regard to strategizing improvement of efficiency in restoration of monsoon damages and periodic maintenance, it was shared to the committee that there are no written procedures but they function as per the precedence they have.  

Further, Thimphu Thromde expressed that people’s ignorance to public notifications issued by Thromde and budget constraints are the factors delaying the proper maintenance of road works carried out by Thromde.
